Little Big Planet Paper Mario inspired 2.5 platformer for fall - Video

Paper Monsters is a very hearty 2.5d sidescrolling platformer with all kinds of goodies, worlds and weapons.
A lot has changed since this original post months ago. Also, a lot of the suggestions from the first few pages
have been added.. (Gotta love the gamers here)
Please feel free to post any thought input!

Looks great, I think it should have faster movement, because it just looked slooow. But, it looks pretty good. I don't know how it's like LittleBigPlanet though.

I'm what you could call a "casual" mobile gamer.

Certainly not the exact same by any means.... Which is a good thing.
There would be too much flak if it was just like it. Although some folks (understandably) might get emotional just over mentioning LBP lol

Just an inspiration in that LBP is probably the most recognizable game when people think of 2.5d.

Only similar in that its a sidescroller.

Thanks for checking out the VIdeo though.

I just hope people will think it is fun when or if they play it

Alright, Thanks!

Yeah. Early enough there is plenty things to write before the polishing starts.
Notice the HUD isn't even in that particular video clip.

As far as speed and movement I prefer to let beta testers help with those types of decisions. With a solid foundation down, things like that can be tweaked anytime.

Just added new video to show daylight and a watery sunny level.

Should have some footage of the flying stuff up in a week or so.

Thanks again for checking it out.

So when you say Paper Mario inspired you just mean the paper theme? Not the RPG elements?
